rear set install questions

installing the danmoto rearsets but i guess i need to remove the whole swing arm pivot bolt to put on the right side rear set. do i need to have the bike hanging when i remove this bolt? it seems like once i take it out the bike will collapse if i dont have it hanging from the ceiling

what i did was buy another pivot bolt and used it to push out the old one, so when the old one is pushed out the other bolt takes it place.

ok handled the pivot bolt. now how the hell do you get out the little pin thing that goes through the bottom of the threads on the rear master cylinder?

Mine had a split pin in it!!!

Have a look at the back of it.


You may need to unbolt the M/C from the original rear set.


Hope this helps you.

got everything installed and it looks and feels great. the only issue is that it seems tht one side is higher than the other. i didnt even notice it even after i sat on it a few times to get a feel for them until i whipped out my tape measure and started measuring distances. i was wondering if anyone else has this issue. i know i read on here that someone else had the problem but im wondering if its because of an incorrect install or thats just how they mounted up

Mine are the same height .

Check your install, maybe different holes on backing plate?

someone on here said it had to do with the locator bolt holes below the swing arm pivot bolt being a few mm off when it was machined so they compensated by mounting the pegs at different heights, which isnt a big deal considering price but id rather have them even if its just my error during install. everything is mounted up correctly though so its gotta be a machining error

I wish I was just that dumb. But unfortunately no :/ defect in the sets I guess but oh we'll. you get what you pay for. It was easily remedied by setting one peg one hole lower. Other than that I'm pretty impressed with them for a little over $150
